That is the key message! GrooveCycle, the brainchild of Sarah-Jane Aboboto, offers something different to your regular spin classes. You work up a sweat without feeling like you’re doing ‘exercise’.
While the class obviously helps to burn calories, get you in shape and work those core muscles, there are other benefits. You can improve your co-ordination as you learn Sarah-Jane’s dance moves. And the next trick is to remember all of them – now that’s brain training!
The GrooveCycle class environment at Reebok Sports Club is relaxed so there is no pressure to nail every dance move or sequence to perfection. This allow you to unearth your own individual groove and forget any inhibitions.
The class is good fun and the experience is enhanced if you go with a group of friends. Admittedly, there’ll be one person who struggles at the start (like me), but you soon find your groove and those smiles won’t disappear.
GrooveCycle doesn’t require any dancing experience, which is fortunate because this reviewer had none. Everyone is welcome to give it a go and Sarah-Jane offers simplifiers if you’re uncomfortable without at least one hand on the handlebar.
Help Sarah-Jane achieve her mission to get the world ‘Grooving’
